Another half month has gone by and I'm just getting around to posting Jack's monthly update. Confession: I'm terrible at these! Goal: Be on time with these through his 1st birthday!
However, I can say that time is flying by faster & faster! The days feel like nanoseconds (after the fact), weeks feel like a day & well, a month feels like a week. The fact that we are getting closer & closer to Jack's birthday has me feeling alll sorts of emotions. From "Whoo we've survived almost 1 year!" to "Oooh where did my baby go!?" they are all so real! But, we're still a couple months away from then so, moving right along...
Weight: 21 lbs 4 oz
Clothes: Depending on brand shirts, onesies & pants are 9 & 12 months. Pajamas are all 12 months... and needless to say I'm prepared & have 18 month Christmas pajamas waiting in the closet because I just know Jack is going to outgrow his 12 months come December!
Diapers: Size 3, Huggies Snug & Dry. We recently started using Target Up & Up nighttime diapers & they work great!
Eating: At about 8 1/2 months we began incorporating lunch so we are up to 3 meals a day and (were at 5 5oz bottles) but, currently at 4 6oz bottles a day. Pretty much a champ at eating purees but, not a fan of trying new things at first. However, some of the best yuck faces are made so, at least it's funny for us! We recently started trying more solid type foods... AH! He is such a picky eater and pretty much spits stuff out as soon as it hits his mouth. We're keeping at it though & gonna push through this picky eating! He did like chocolate ice cream the other night though... #parentwin
Sleeping: So glad to say that we are back on a regular sleeping schedule & Jack is sleeping through the night!! At first it was hard to get used to & Matt & I both were still waking up in the middle of the night but, now we're all sleeping through the night & Jack has been waking up between 5 & 7:30am. If He wakes up at 5 he takes a bottle & goes back to sleep so, woo hoo!!
Jack is an ever-so-curious little boy. Running around in his walk a lot of the time & always discovering something new... and that He shouldn't be in! We still don't have a crawler on our hands but, I feel like He's getting closer as he likes to lean over & rock back and forth. He's been up on his hands and knees but, looks around like "what now!?". Once he's on his stomach he does scooch himself backwards all around the house. He's a very vocal little guy who loves to chat & flirt with everyone. It seems to take us a bit longer to get through the produce section these days because people are constantly stopping to talk to him. Jack loves to be outside whether it is just in the garage with Dad or out in the yard... He loves being outside & throws a fit when it's time to go in. He truly is an "easy" baby though and a joy to be around! He has the biggest smile & the best little belly laugh. He thinks sneezing is funny and looks up with the biggest smile after sneezing... it's pretty cute & funny. Speaking of smiling, He has his 2 front bottom teeth & the 2 front top teeth are coming in & have broken the gums... & biting hurts!! Ahh... as any mommy I just think He's the best little thing ever! Everyday is fun and certainly an adventure! We love you so much little guy! Bring on month 10... 11... and 12! We're excited to celebrate your first of major holidays!
